about that... I received a ticket about a week ago for doing 85 down the i5 from a CHP Motorrad rider. (heading to san diego from Carlsbad)
I saw the bike waaaay back there cruising along catching up behind me and (guessing over 1/4 mile behind... minimal traffic) when he hit the light I looked around for somebody he was pulling over, and realized there was nobody really around other than me. mentally I was wtf? are you kidding? guess I was actually doing 85 at some point... (go figure) but no more than 85 before I saw him as I was actually having a rather chill commute (no hurry no rush) and I saw him waaaaaay back there and eased off.
this whole experience weirds me out. (due to the fact I actually feel I would've never received the ticket if I were in one of my four wheeled vehicles.)
edit: I must add, the officer had the ultimate motorcycle cop mustache. I give him major street cred for that. I almost told him as much but figured discretion is key at times and he might take it wrong.
